Katered Kanines (George the groomer) is the best dog groomer. he is caring, gentle, comes to your home, cleans up when finished and does the best he can for the dog (no matter what breed or shape the dog is in). I just love him. He does my white poodle (Angel) and my daughter Tanya's two Shiz Tsu's. (Pookie and Peanut).
i cannot praise George enough. i have had dogs all my life and he is the greatest. wonderful, personable person and when he is done it is almost like he cleaned you kitchen (or whatever area you had your baby groomed in).
Again please pass the word. George at Katered Kanines is the greatest. it would be hard for someone to follow in his footsteps.

This was my first in home grooming and we are thrilled! My bichons are seniors (14 and 16 yrs) with warts and ligament problems. They must be handled carefully and can no longer (physically/emotionally) be left at groomers for hours. George was wonderful with them and surprisingly neat and fast (and prompt). My dogs weren't stressed AT ALL and neither was I. He did everything and gave them stylish puppy cuts---now they don't look a day over 9.
I am very picky. My bichons tend to get very matted and I have had unfortunate experiences with even the highest end grooming places, and must walk around the neighborhood in a stupor until it is time to pick up my dogs. And usually my dogs are nervous wrecks both before and after. No more. I am only mad at myself for not having had the luck to find George sooner.
I am also someone who doesn't let just anyone into my apt. George is trustworthy, polite and he listens to your concerns and pays attention and you can stand right there and watch him groom if you want. (He's a great conversationalist to both humans and dogs). No noose around the dog's neck, no harsh words, no crates. He washed them in my kitchen sink. I provided the towels, he cleaned up everything. His prices are fair and reasonable. Try him once & you'll never ever go back to grooming places again no matter how high end.
p.s. I'm a real person. I've never written a review for anything in my life but when it comes to the care of my dogs and those who treat them well I will do everything. I met a woman in the street who uses George for her poodle and the woman seemed as neurotically bonded as I am to my dogs. I had the sense that she was not just trying to get business for her groomer but that this guy was really good. He has a website and refs and many years at established grooming places (and there's one very well known one that would like to have him and all his clients). That's it, I'm out of characters or I would never stop praising him!

My pooch has been groomed and cared for by the proprietor for over nine years. Being a sensitive dog with a difficult type of coat to groom, I would never trust anyone else with her. I have confidently referred KK to others and I have received the most wonderfully positive feedback. If you love your dog, have it groomed by Katered Kanines.

George McCarthy has been grooming my small poodle for three years. He is kind, gentle, loving and my dog is always happy to see him. In addition, he is efficient, professional, reliable, and a pleasure to have in my home. I came to George as a result of a recommendation from a stranger walking a beautifully groomed poodle on the street. Although I had been using other groomers, I couldn't help but notice how perfect this dog looked. Now every body on the street asks me who grooms my girl. I can't think of a better gift to give yourself and your dog. George is just perfect!

I am so happy to have found George of Katered Kanines- he has groomed my Cockapoo, Lexi twice now and has done such a fantastic job. After some bad experiences trying to find a replacement groomer after my last groomer hurt her back, I really appreciate George and his professionalism. He shows up on time, totally reliable, does a fantastic job, is kind and gentle with my dog and cleaned my kitchen better than it was before he came!

George is the best groomer I have ever had. My kerry blue terrier has never looked better. I've had groomers need to look online to see what kerry blues are supposed to look like. George knew and achieved perfection. He bonds with my dog and makes him feel at ease. Having someone like George groom my dog in my home is a relief since cab drivers are loathe to pick up dogs larger that pocket pets. Strangers on the street stop me to tell me what a beautiful dog I have. Who could ask for more? I highly recommend George.

George was such a pleasant and personable groomer! He took great care of our Westie with such professionalism and experience. When we called for the appointment, we told George that our dog was overdue for a grooming, had long hair for a Westie and was matted in some areas. We also warned him that she may be a difficult client because she gets nervous for her groomings. He was not concerned at all! To our pleasant surprise, our Westie was comfortable and at ease during the process. The final result was our beautiful girl with a shapely coat! In the past, we've brought our Westie for drop-offs at the groomers, but we would have to leave her for more than 6 hours sometimes. We would much rather have at home service so our Westie is more comfortable and at ease. We would highly recommend Katered Kanines! Also, 10% off for 1st time customers was a nice discount!
George has been grooming my maltese for over 8 years. I now only have Will, my beautiful girl maltese, who I love more then anything in the world! Will's father also is a vip NFL player, so there is a lot of pressure for Will to always look perfect! Will is 3 and hated going to the salon, which also stressed me. George now comes to our home and we both did not believe the greeting Will gave him! I was suprised to learn for the last 3 years Will never showed any emotion at the salon, which confirmed she hated it, especially after all the kisses George got here! He made both our lives happier and much easier, I even booked weekly appointments for the rest of Will's life!!!

George is the BEST Groomer ever and has really helped my girls look and feel their best! His gentle and caring voice and handling of the girls has been the key to his success. They are always so happy to see him and especially love flaunting their stuff after their beauty treatment! George is prompt, amazingly trustworthy, and always leaves my kitchen clean after he is finished. I am so grateful to have found George and highly recommend him to any potential client. He is a keeper!!!
